Birds project

Hi you all!
2nd graders are working on birds.
They learnt some vocabulary around this topic and they discovered some words as beak, feather, wings, talon, nest, egg, bird and chick.
Here you have an wonderful video by The Cornell lab of Ornithology
Although it's a little bit difficult to understand for very young children, it's worthy to watch it. Enjoy the images and the pics. Below the video, you will find more explanations about this amazing project!

The Birds-of-Paradise Project reveals the  beauty of 39 of the most exquisitely specialized animals on earth. After 8 years and 18 expeditions to New Guinea, Australia, and nearby islands, Cornell Lab scientist Ed Scholes and National Geographic photojournalist Tim Laman succeeded in capturing images of all 39 species in the bird-of-paradise family for the first time ever. This trailer gives a sense of their monumental undertaking and the spectacular footage that resulted. Filmed by Tim Laman, Ed Scholes, and Eric Liner.
